Complaint Submission Process
Trinity University has an established process for students to raise concerns about their University experience.
- For formal review, complaints must be submitted directly by the student as the aggrieved party.
- Students may submit a complaint for formal review through the link below.
- All complaints are reviewed by a complaint review team.
- While parents, campus community members and off-campus professionals may notify University officials of concerns, such concerns are not official complaints until levied by the affected student.
- Students with questions about the complaint process may contact the Office of the Dean of Students.
A complaint about an appeal process and the associate appeal process will not result in the reconsideration of a specific prior decision. For example, a complaint about an Honor Council decision will not re-open the case nor serve as an appeal. Appeal processes include but are not limited to: Scholarships and financial aid, Title IX and harassment, grade appeals, honor code, student conduct, traffic and parking.
Submitting a Complaint
When filing a complaint, be prepared to write out your complaint using clear and concise language. If you have supporting documentation (emails, pictures, etc.), you may upload attachments directly to the complaint form.
Documentation of Records
Complaints are considered confidential and will remain logged and securely stored per the University’s Records Retention Policy. A summary of complaints and resolutions will be prepared annually by the Dean of Students.
Title IX Complaints
Individuals who wish to file a claim regarding Title IX with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights must do so within 180 days of the incident based on the time limits for adjudication set by that agency. For more information, please consult Trinity’s HR website.
